Attorney General Sessions Must be Watched Closely for Biased Conduct

MP3 Interview with Allegra Chapman, director of voting and elections with Common Cause, conducted by Scott Harris

agaff

By a 52 to 47 vote on Feb. 8, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions was confirmed by his Senate colleagues to become the U.S. attorney general. His narrow victory underscored the bitter controversy surrounding Sessions and the many charges against him for racial bias in speech and action – as well as holding homophobic views. Many civil rights and social justice groups who had opposed his nomination expressed dismay that Sessions will now become the nation's top law enforcement official, despite his long history of opposing civil rights and voting rights legislation, as well as measures advocating equal treatment of all Americans regardless of their race, religion or sexual orientation.  Story continues

This mile-and-a-half section will connect two segments of the 1,172-mile pipeline that will take half a million barrels a day of dirty, explosive Bakken oil from North Dakota across South Dakota and Iowa, into Illinois, where it will connect to other pipelines taking the fossil fuel to the Gulf Coast for refining.  Story continues

MP3 Interview with Leslie Cagan, veteran political activist and organizer, conducted by Scott Harris

resistance

After just three weeks in office, Donald Trump has led a chaotic and scandal-plagued administration into the history books as the most unpopular incoming president in modern American history. From Day One of his inauguration to the present, there have been countless protests targeting the Trump agenda – from the millions who gathered nationwide for the historic January 21 Women’s March, to spontaneous demonstrations at airports across the country in opposition to Trump's Muslim ban executive order.  Story continues
